Hi everyone, this is actually my 2-week point in the challenge since I started early. I notice that I might appear to be pretty strict with my 6 week challenge. Part of the reason is time--it takes less time to make simple meals from beans and greens and salads. The other part is I guess I am looking to reset and seal my healthy habits. Dr. Fuhrman says it takes 12 weeks to change habits and break addictions so I am looking to do this for 12 weeks (well, hopefully forever). I want to lose my desire for SAD sweets so am even avoiding the sweet nutritarian food, except fruit. But I should think about making some nice dishes when I get back from vacation. I came across a nice spaghetti recipe when I was looking for a pesto recipe in my last post. I have a ton of recipes on this site and then there's Dr. Fuhrman's recipe site. So when I get back from vacation, I should try to start making a nice meal on the weekends. Since it will be winter by then I won't have mountain biking and kayaking to distract me.
Here's what I ate today.
Brekky: small bowl of frozen fruit--banana, cherry, mango--before yoga class (was out of fresh, went grocery shopping after yoga). carrots and cabbage when I got home to tide me over to lunch.
Lunch: 2 giant corn on the cobs, delicious as usual. Tomorrow is probably the last day for fresh sweet corn so I'll do a repeat then. sliced tomato from the garden. some more carrots.
Dinner: giant salad with kale, collards (massaged), cabbage, cilantro, parsley, yellow squash, fantastic local red bell pepper, cucumber, edamame, mango, and balsamic vinegar. more carrots.
